  • Haneda-Niigata Japan in a JAC YS-11 (56k warning)

    So I have a lot of homework that I should be doing...but I dont want to, so I decided to do a flight and shoot some screenshots. A friend sent me new textures for the sky as well as new sun effects, pretty happy with both.

    1) Before startup at Haneda


    2) Firing up some of the most unique sounding engines ever. Too bad you can't include sound in screenshots


    3) Holding short of runway 20 (if I remember correctly). Check out Rainbow Bridge in the background. I was surprised that MS made the colored lights that change color (hence the name) into the bridge.


    4) Rotate


    5) Initial Climbout with the wheels comin up


    6) Looking back at Haneda


    7) Shinjuku, the building that looks like 3 skyscrapers together is the Park Hyatt where lost in translation was filmed


    Cruise with the sun finally starting to light the sky


    9) As seen from the virtual cockpit


    10) Starting to get vectors for the ILS runway 28 at Niigata


    11) Descending over the fog covered mountains (I know it looks kinda lame)


    12) Turning to intercept the localizer


    13) WTF? So I'm about 8 miles from the airport and I hear another airplane call up tower on the same approach only 10 miles away...shortly therafter


    14) WTF #2...this one proves two things. The comptuer can't shoot an ILS, and the ATC on FS2004 sucks


    15) So I slowed down as much as I could hoping he could clear the runway, but this is right before I was told to go around


    16) Here I am with the airport to my right, barely visable through the fog


    17) Short final #2, runway is clear, and cleared to land


    And that are it. I was gonna include one landing shot, and then one after I parked, but whenever I have any kind of reduced visibility and use spot plane you can't see a damn thing other than the plane. Does anybody elses computer do that?

        bootiful!

        ATC IS the bitch of flight sim.. Trying to land 3 times at FRA with a go-around eachtime.... sucky

        And no dont mention VATSIM It would take me months to figure that thing out

                Thanks, I think I got it from flightsim.com. I really like the plane, I think its better than some of the payware stuff I've had. Just a warning though, dont take off with full throttle....well, do it, but after you do it once, you'll see why not . Just becareful not to overtemp the engines, cause they will shut down on you

                Yeah, the whole not being able to see the ground after I land is probably a computer issue as it happened in 2002 as well. I can see things well for about 2 seconds, then it flickers a bit, then everything but the plane is a complete whiteout, looks normal from the cockpit though.

                I believe so, a friend of mine just sent it to me, said he got it from simviation.com. The names are sunmod_v2.zip and WEUv2.zip

                      I love the YS-11, never seen screenshots here of one. Nice shots, and ya, FS9 ATC is retarded, and so are the AI pilots who taxi down the runway at 3 knots after they land causing all the go arounds.

                        I have Traffic 2005 and you can change what speed they taxi at
